Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders was awarded 49 more delegates in Washington state, according to district-level breakdown of the state’s primary results done by the Associated Press. The rest of the state’s 101 delegates are awarded according to results from congressional districts, which had not been determined until Saturday. Front-runner Hillary Clinton picked up 18 of the remaining district-level delgates, to go with the nine delegates she won on election day. However, the newly awarded delegates won’t give Sanders much of a boost. He still needs to win 66 percent of the remaining pledged delegates in the primary, a figure that polling in upcoming states indicates will be hard to reach. Clinton entered Saturday with 1,683 pledged delegates, to 1,362 for Sanders.
